San Juan Is a City on the Rise

An ode to the Nyuorican community in our hometown NYC: This excellent guide to San Juan, Puerto Rico, includes a high-low art lover's itinerary, an inside look at the local dance scene, a list of day trips from the capital, and tips on how travelers can help the island recover after the devastating hurricane. – Jeralyn, editorial director

Fairytale Castles in Scotland

I'm preparing for my first trip to Scotland in a few weeks, my head full of images of misty moors and tartan wallpapers. And I'm spending a lot of time on web pages with titles like "16 Fairytale Castles in Scotland." Dunrobin, in the photo above, has 189 rooms, which they probably needed because it's the northernmost castle in the country. I wouldn't want to leave either. - Pavia, CEO

The Cultural Findings of Hendry Hamim

One of our most popular Instagram posts of the week is a photo of a floating market in Indonesia photographed by cultural documentarian and anagramer Hendry Hamim — who posts as both @hendryhamim and @dryhenmiham. Not your normal Instagram fodder. – Jeralyn

A Dreamy B&B in the Dutch Countryside

B+B Bruurs is a design barn with a beautiful kitchen, outdoor fireplace, and swimming pool in the countryside of Brabant outside Eindhoven. Susan Bruurs and her husband took the space over from their parents and rebuilt it from the ground up, thinking through every detail, like the vibe of the bedroom, the wine they stock, and the pair of clogs they leave by the doorway. – Pauline, Petite Passport

The World's First Vertical Farming Restaurant Is in Berlin

Good Bank is the world's first vertical farming restaurant. That means the leafy greens don't come from a field. Instead, you watch them grow right behind the bar, inside tall glass boxes. I never thought I would pay this much for just a salad, but everything I’ve tried has been delicious, so I keep coming back. – Christina, Spotted by Locals
